Broken Hill livestock biosecurity hub

There is currently an opportunity to investigate the feasibility of establishing a livestock biosecurity hub (truck wash) in Broken Hill, with the facility to be primarily used by livestock carriers for the purpose of cleaning livestock carrying crates. The NSW Government has provided funding to Local Land Services, who have commissioned NSW Public Works to:

  • undertake an options study
  • prepare a detailed business case
  • finalise the Statement of Environmental Effects (SEE)
  • pre-concept design documentation
  • progress to pre-detail design documentation for a new truck wash facility.

Current status

NSW Public Works completed a tender to undertake the above works in September 2023, with a contractor formally engaged. Delivery of the above works has commenced, with contractors on site in Broken Hill from February 2024.

Next steps

Once the above works are completed, Local Land Services will assess the merits of the project, including the most appropriate ownership and operating model.
